Spring 2012 Member Event: Overview

Inside Out

The three-day event examined what’s going on at the Media Lab through presentations, discussions, and open houses. Wednesday's symposium, hosted by award-winning journalist John Hockenberry, explored how, through a deeper understanding of the natural world, designers will be changing the very nature of technology: how tomorrow’s technologies will go beyond assistive devices to integrate seamlessly with humans as symbiotic, collaborative systems. We will envision a world where the boundaries between what is natural and what is synthetic–what is human and what is not–will be forever blurred.
